With the internal spaces of this Cronulla beachfront home in need of some attention, Amber Road sourced inspiration from Japanese design principles and their minimalist clients plea to keep things as unpretentious and simple as possible. Looking effortless is often the hardest task of all but the designers have outdone themselves using clean lines, and pale timbers of birch and american oak to compliment existing features like the marble floors.

A lack of flowing light and a ‘boxy’ nature was combatted by collaboration with paint colour artist Sonia van De Haar of Lymesmith. The result, a restrained yet transformational colour palette of warm greys, bright whites and rich blacks creating blocks that stop just short of the roof with rounded edges.

The white weatherboard waterfront house looks fresh against the green landscape.

Maybe the folk song about Andy really is a sign... that it is hard to make a good rhyme with Mullens.
After seeing your blinking set of gifs, I got all 'crushy' and now I want to see your face more. The absurdity and mild creepiness of my own reaction made me think of something; a series of pictures of your face pixelated to 'censor' different features in different combinations. (Baldessari 2014?) Because obviously, the fact that someone is attracted to your face means it is your responsibility to cover it like a proper modest lady, yes?
Crushes are nice, so that’s a bit cute.
I seriously LOVE Baldessari. You think interesting thoughts. I was thinking about pixels earlier this year – more related to my “cultural/ethnic identifiers” but I also get pictures in my head when I think of it that sort of way.
Also I see your tongue-in-cheek remark, and I chuckle darkly. Heh. Heh.
The blink set is fascinating, bordering on hypnotic. I know it is weird to say, but you have a genuinely interesting face. By which I mean 'it didn't get boring to watch a gif of you blinking repeating', not 'euphemism for ugly'.
Haha, thanks. I grew it myself, but the credit really goes to my ma and pa.
I went back to my blog and watched it for a while myself, blinking at the same time the GIF’s did. I hope one was looking over over my shoulder.
I was also hesitant about posting other things afterward because I also liked how they looked in a line…

Sitting my sorry little butt in a framing store at the moment and a folk song came on the radio station they’re playing through the TV called “Andy.”
It’s a sign~~

Also I baked 48 jam drops tonight. 49 if you count the giant one that’s the size of a small plate.
Now the challenge is to try not eat them all in 3 days.
I ran into Nam today. It is always such a treat, but also so deeply heartbreaking. I feel like I never had enough time with him. We weren’t done yet. One of the most connected friendships I’ve had can’t exist any more and it makes me so sad.
